Kochi: The third edition of the Malayalam Wikipedia Meet will be held at the Rajagiri College of Social Sciences in Kalamassery on April 17, 2010. The event is meant as a gathering of people who contribute and work with the Malayalam Wiki of the Wikimedia project.
The organisers are expecting about 100 Wikipedians for the event which is a collaborative effort of various organisations like SPACE, IT@School and the Rajagiri College of Social Sciences. The organisers hope to introduce the Malayalam Wiki initiatives to freshers through this meet while using this platform to share their experiences.
Malayalam Wikipedia has about 50 steady contributors with over 12,000 articles and page views of 28 lakhs per month as on February 2010. While most of them are from Kerala, there are contributors from the Middle East, the US and the UK. Malayalam is also the first Indian language which has a mobile wiki.
A release from the organisers said that public participation will be allowed for the first time in this Wiki Meet. For registrations, please mail email@example.com. The last Malayalam Wiki was organised at Thrissur.
